Familiar Legendary Fiend

The crowd quietened down.

Chu Liuyue turned around and saw that it was also a very familiar face—Liang Xiaoxiao.

She and Jiang Zhiyuan walked over together. She was the one who said the sentence earlier.

"If Senior Brother Rong Xiu didn’t think highly of Junior Brother Chu Zhong, I believe you’d still be thinking of how to teach him a lesson, right?"

"You!" Liu Yintong’s face flashed white and red. This Liang Xiaoxiao has never given me face. 

Previously, they had already ended on bad terms. Now that they met again, they would naturally not be able to stand each other.

"Do you think you can absolve yourself of responsibility regarding what you previously did just because you said a few good words?" Liang Xiaoxiao covered her lips and laughed. "It seems a little too late for you to come over and apologize, right? Do you really think that everyone is stupid and that they can’t guess your true intentions? You just want to know Senior Brother Rong Xiu through Chu Yue, right?"

Liang Xiaoxiao lightly nudged Jiang Zhiyuan’s elbow. "Zhiyuan, you know Senior Brother Rong Xiu the best. Why don’t you say if he will fall for this trick?"

Jiang Zhiyuan lightly said, "He’s naturally a cold person, so he won’t take these things to heart. Besides…"

She paused and glanced at Liu Yintong as she said meaningfully, "Besides, he hates other people harassing him non-stop the most."

Even if it were me, who had loved Rong Xiu for so long and could be considered the princess consort that the Sky-Cloud Empire’s clan leader had wanted from the very start, I didn’t dare to do anything out of character. 

A few years ago, I kept diligently cultivating but couldn’t even see Rong Xiu once. When I suddenly barged into the Sky-Cloud Empire the previous time, I was already lectured. Not to mention others!

Liu Yintong clenched her silver teeth tightly. "Don’t accuse me! I-I just feel that I let Junior Brother Chu Yue down previously, so—"

Before she could finish her sentence, Liang Xiaoxiao laughed in mockery. "Liu Yintong, do you believe your own words?"

Liu Yintong finally couldn’t carry on, and her face burned!

Chu Liuyue—who was standing at the side—blinked and suddenly realized. It was still because of Rong Xiu. I knew that Liu Yintong’s sudden attitude change was too weird… 

Detecting her gaze, Liu Yintong felt even more humiliated as she hurriedly turned around to leave.

That back view looked as if she were running out of fear and humiliation.

Liang Xiaoxiao crossed her arms and laughed. "She’s really relentless! Senior Brother Rong Xiu has already made himself very clear, yet she still dares to harbor such filthy intentions! She really doesn’t know what’s good for her!"

Jiang Zhiyuan didn’t seem so agitated; she was calmer and glanced at Chu Liuyue. After a momentary pause, she suddenly walked toward the latter.

When she stood still, the both of them were only three steps away from each other. She gave Chu Liuyue a generous and magnanimous smile. "Junior Brother, thank you for what happened previously."

Jiang Zhiyuan was a natural beauty. She had a slim figure and intricate five features. Even though it was nighttime, she still looked very charming under the reflection of the surrounding candlelight.

Her smile looked even purer and gentler, causing quite a few people to be dazed. It was a pity that this move didn’t have much effect on Chu Liuyue.

Chu Liuyue also smiled, and her black gem-like eyes were calm and unaffected. "Senior Sister Jiang, why did you thank me?"

Seeing that the young man seemed to be nonchalant toward her goodwill, Jiang Zhiyuan couldn’t help but be dissatisfied. This Chu Yue… Why can’t I seem to see through his thoughts… 

But these thoughts only flashed across her mind once, and she didn’t show any of her inner emotions on her face.

Her smile was unfaltering as she gently replied, "I’m naturally thanking you for helping Senior Brother Rong Xiu block that attack. Even though he’s very strong and won’t normally be in trouble if he meets with such matters… it’s still good that you helped him, Junior Brother Chu Yue."

Her eyes looked worried, but she smiled even deeper, and her eyes were genuine. "I heard that he came back safely and isn’t very injured. If it weren’t because of your intelligence and you managed to pass through the academy barrier to help him in time, I’m afraid… the consequences would be unimaginable. Not to mention that you were even locked up at Fengmin Mountain for a month because of this. For him, Junior Brother Chu Yue, you have sacrificed greatly."

Chu Liuyue’s gaze flickered, and she smiled. On the surface, Jiang Zhiyuan seems to be praising me. However, she is actually scolding me for not knowing what is good for me, breaking the academy rules, and barging through the barrier. 

To many people, this wasn’t a very glorious event. It was a pity these words weren’t harmful to Chu Liuyue. This was because she didn’t even care about how others thought or talked about her, and it was pretty nice to stay at Fengmin Mountain.

Hence, after this sentence, Chu Liuyue wasn’t angry or awkward as she smiled even more brightly. She took advantage of the situation and said, "Senior Sister Jiang, you’re too kind. I was just doing a little something within my means. I really don’t dare to take all the credit for myself. Besides, Senior Brother Rong Xiu has already thanked me personally. I think… you don’t have to make this unnecessary move, right?"

Jiang Zhiyuan’s expression immediately became incredulous.

Chu Liuyue didn’t seem to notice it as she continued, "I helped Senior Brother Rong Xiu, not you, Senior Sister Jiang. I think you should keep your gratitude. If not, it’ll be bad if other people misunderstand you."

Jiang Zhiyuan’s blood boiled! Is Chu Yue slapping my face in public?! 

She forced a smile and said, "His Grace and I have grown up together since young, and we have a deep relationship. We don’t have to separate it so clearly…"

To save her face, Jiang Zhiyuan had even changed how she addressed Rong Xiu.

"Oh?" Chu Liuyue interrupted her and said in a seemingly smiling manner, "Listening to you… Senior Sister Jiang, I almost thought that Senior Brother Rong Xiu’s Princess Consort was you."

Jiang Zhiyuan couldn’t maintain her smile any longer! She finally could tell that this Chu Yue had no intentions of talking to her peacefully! He is young, but he has a sharp tongue! 

The atmosphere was cold and awkward.

Everyone could tell the mocking intent in Chu Liuyue’s sentence. Yeah! At the end of the day, Jiang Zhiyuan has no special relationship with Rong Xiu. How could she have the right to thank him? Strictly speaking, isn’t Chu Yue the closest one to Rong Xiu in the entire academy? Her previous sentence was laughable! 

Jiang Zhiyuan took a deep breath in. In actual fact, she already disliked Chu Yue greatly from the first time she saw him. She wasn’t sure where this feeling came from, but she couldn’t get rid of it.

Seeing Tuan Zi squatting on Chu Liuyue’s shoulder, she squinted her eyes and suddenly said, "Junior Brother Chu Yue, you legendary fiend seems rather familiar…"

I remember clearly that Chu Liuyue also had an identical red-tailed phoenix! She suddenly thought of something, averted her gaze, and stared at Chu Liuyue closely!
